What exactly do Student Academic Leaders do?

  • A Student Academic Leader (SAL) is a course representative for each year group on a programme of study.
  • This is a voluntary role so there can be more than one SAL in each year group.
  • SALs collect feedback from other students on their course.
  • SALs bring the feedback to the Student Feedback Forum which they facilitate each term.
  • SALs meet with the Course Leader to resolve any issues arising from the Feedback Forum. 
  • SALs give their feedback to their School Rep who feeds it back to the Students Union.

What skills and experience will I gain?

  • Build relationships with the Course Leader and senior members of staff from your school. 
  • Learn to solve problems as part of a team.
  • Develop leadership and negotiation skills.
  • Use your experience as part of your Graduate Plus Award.
  • Get more involved In the Students Union Voice Team.

Once you've applied...

  • You will receive a welcome email with information about the compulsory training and your training pack from the Students Union.
  • You will also receive a branded t-shirt once you have completed your training.
  • The training will enable you to have a better idea on how to make changes that benefit your programme and the students on it.
  • Throughout the year there will be training and development opportunities which will help develop your employability skills.
  • There will be opportunities to meet other students reps from across Birmingham to share knowledge, experiences and attend workshops.
